• Guys, we've spent considerable money converting the Les Paul Forum to this new XenForo platform, and we have ongoing monthly operating expenses. THE "DONATIONS" TAB IS NOW WORKING, AND WE WOULD APPRECIATE ANY DONATIONS YOU CAN MAKE TO KEEP THE LES PAUL FORUM GOING! Thank you!

You gotta see this...My Sweet 58

I have to say, judging from the pics I have been seeing on here over the past few months, Historic Makeovers seems to be doing an amazing job on these guitars. Looks great!

That's interesting.....8 1761.......makes it a 2001 R8.....Ive never seen an '01 that wasn't Butterscotch or without a Figuretop....not to mention the TRC in a different spot.......or did I read the serial # incorrectly?

Honestly, the best thing I can say about it is that it reminds me of a certain vintage '58! :headbange :2zone

Great looking guitar 49strat, these HM guitars do look really good but I think they could go a step further with some uneven fading, just as you see on this original.

Mine faded unevenly. See "The beauty of the plaintop" in Historic Makeover's Dealer blvd section. :salude
Oh, BTW, I love the look of your sweet 58!
